Photography Secrets Revealed

Photography Secrets Revealed

It's no secret that professional photographers' photos are usually much better quality than photos taken by amateurs. But the "secret" I want to let you in on is that not every beautiful photo started out that way. You need to see the photos in my July, 2019 Newsletter to see how photographers get more shots with great lighting, interesting compositions, and more eye-catching scenes, even with photos that weren't so perfect. Click the link below to get in on the secrets!

Tips for Taking Better Photos

Tips for Taking Better Photos

If you ever visit photography forums or blogs (as I do), you'd probably noticed that photographers often rate photos in two broad categories -- "Photographs" and "Snapshots." A photograph is an image that is well composed, focused, properly exposed, and causes an emotional response in the viewer. So, can we non-professionals learn how to make photographs instead of snapshots?

Well, I have seven very easy tips to help elevate your photos into that "Photograph" category. These won't turn any of us into professional photographers, but they'll certainly make our photos more interesting, more beautiful, and more memorable. Read my August, 2016 newsletter at the link below for all the details.

How to Protect Your DLSR Camera In Wet Conditions or Even Underwater

How to Protect Your DLSR Camera In Wet Conditions or Even Underwater

Recently, I found a glitch in my plans for my newest hobby - kayaking Sarasota Bay and taking high-quality photos of the birds, Dolphin, Manatee, and beautiful sights on the Bay, That glitch is that kayaking is a potentially VERY wet, salty, sandy sport and my DSLR camera shouldn't get wet, salty, or sandy! On my sit-on-top kayak, the logical place (and really, only place) to keep my camera as I paddle between shots is in my lap. BUT, my lap is guaranteed to get wet from the motion of my paddle. Plus there's always the possibility of flipping my kayak over, getting everything on board dunked in salt water.

So I worried - was my kayak a waste of money or will I have to invest more money in a waterproof DSLR? The answer: Nope! I found what I hope is the perfect solution for less than $60. I'm sharing my solution here because I'm guessing some of you might like to find a great solution for taking pictures with your expensive cameras in wet conditions, too.

With a little online research, I came across a "dry bag" for DSLR cameras with telephoto lenses (pictured here). I've also shared the link to the site where I purchased mine below. It's available on other sites, as well. What impressed me about this particular bag over others I found was the following:

* It has a hard, UV-coated, polycarbonate lens that your camera's lens "looks through" thereby providing clear, sharp pictures.
* It has finger pockets that provide access to all your camera's functionality.
* It allows use of a telephoto lens.
* It has a neck lanyard to keep your camera protected from falling.
* As a bonus, it also allows use underwater up to 33'.
* "Pro" version bags can cost well over $1,000 as compared to about $60 for this one.

I asked around on some of the online kayaking forums I've joined and found others who have used this product - some for years - and all gave it high marks for both picture quality and camera/lens protection.

Mine is expected to arrive today, so I'll test it out over the next couple of weeks and let you know if I'm as impressed with it as I hope I'll be.

Here's the link to the site where I bought mine: www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/547694-REG/DiCAPac_WPS10_WP_S10_Waterproof_Case.html

Hope you found this helpful. If you've found other solutions for protecting your DSLR in wet conditions, drop me an email and we can compare notes!

Have a great rest of the summer,
